Climbwild, I don't think Radu is finished with this page yet.
CW is right that it could use a lot more information. Take a look at Muntii Rodnei for an idea of what a page about a whole mountain range could look like. Still, this is a very good start.
Three stars for encouragement, especially since we don't have much info about Romania here on SP. Let me know when you're done adding stuff and I'll consider raising my vote.
Oh, and as you're no doubt discovering, when you create a page that describes a large area you will need to devote some effort to organizing it in a way that people will be able to find the parts that interest them (say, photos of a particular chalet). Group pages like this are a big effort, but you can do it. Or if you'd rather do something easier for your first mountain page you can put this one up for adoption.
Great that we have Fagaras page here , but there are quite many things missing. First of all it may be good to rename it Fagaras GROUP , or something like that. Also add latitude and longitude ( use Moldoveanu's ).
You may want to make links to the peaks already on SP : Negoiu , Moldoveanu.
Getting there section should be a bit more detailed.
On the Camping section : the Negoiu page is right now more Fagaras than Negoiu page , so maybe you should discuss with its maintainer transferring some of the info from there on this page. He has great huts info there.
Edit : more than 2 months and no additions , this page is about whole not so small mountain range , there should be more info.
Latitude 45.6 N
Longitude 24.75 E
I saw the photos you posted before you started to re-build the page. They were really good! I hope you continue with this page and make pages of the other ones you had up for a short time earlier on today. A very good potential and base with such photos.
Three stars for encouragement.
Good start, but please improve your page with more text and informations.
Welcome to SP and all the best!
Great idea for the page but it really needs to be seriously updated and completed, Fagaras as absolutely great mountain range deserves some professional presentation at SP.
You've just taken over and the page already looks very good. And I bet it'll be getting better and better. :D
Yes, it's already a quite rich page. Not sure if this symptom appears only on my laptop or it's a general problem, but I see only rectangles inserted into the text where special Romanian characters should be. If it's a general problem, then perhaps it would be better to replace these characters with standard Latin ones
Yes I need to know if its general and I will change it back...Oh noooooooo and on my page also :(!!!!
Once again, congrats !
...you three have done to this page. Completely reshaped, as it deserved to be! :)
Köszönöm szépen Peter, in the name of all three :P.
"Nisa de locuri de munc?!"
Hahaha Larry! :D
I didnt know where to post this so I choosed to be just like a comment. We got at the hut Negoiu at almost 11 in the night and guess what the guy from this hut asked us first????
1. What is with you that you are coming at this hour?
2. Who bring you till here? (he refered about which guy that bring turists with the car till the Cariera bring us)
3. Do you have rezervation?
So nothing like in the old times when a good and normal hut guy bring you first a hot tea and invite you to rest or ask you if you are ok :(.
I got pissed of and I told him that I dont care if he have an empty bed or room we have tents. Then suddenly he bring us a key and then dissapear lol.He didnt told us where is that room, what kind we wanted, cheeper or much expansive, he just leave me that key and gone lol. Of course was the expansive one :((.
Probably I will never go there anymore and perhaps with the foreigners turists he is nicer...
Nice to hear from your trip in Fagaras. I think this approach is common, especially in crowded summer period. But I agree, that it is not a kind attitude for so tired tourists coming there at this night hour. I descended to Negoiu hut last year after heavy thunderstorm and only three hungry dogs invited me. Maybe, everything is about nationality. An Australian hiker, I met in Deva station, was satisfied with accomodation in Bircaciu hut. He was advised to stay there overnight due to bad weather forecast and I am convinced, that he could not anticipate this situation, so no reservation for him in Bircaciu hut. He was lucky to not camp in his tent during this most horrible night I have ever experienced, because the same was true in Paring mts (Mo/Tue 16.-17.8.).
We could prepare Fagaras Route (70km traverse), so I hope you could embed some photos.
BTW: What was the weather? (Fagaras A/R was on the front SP page)
I can say that the people from Barcaciu hut they are really mountaineers and they treat turists always how it should. I will always go there with pleasure. I love the food also :D. Sad but I have just a few pics from Fagaras cause I buyed from a village 6 bad batteries and I took just a few pics with it :((. The weather was great, burn my skin so bad, just 2 days windy and cloudy :D. In the last day, actually saturday the weather changed in bad.
what a perfect work!! Hats off to you, guys!
Thanks! This is a result of Czech-Romanian-Polish cooperation. It's about time some Hungarians joined in and made some child pages. ;-)
